I’ve recently moved and been slowly working on a new workshop, so I thought it was about time I share some photos. It’s a much bigger (and cleaner) space than I’ve ever had, approx 13 feet square and decked out with more counter space and storage than I can currently use.
Since taking these photos I’ve added carpet, more open shelves, installed a PC so I don’t have to worry about ruining my laptop, and I’ve started to fill the shop back up with tools, which I’m itching to get back to using.
I have a dedicated electronic/solder station with everything easy to hand and a nice comfy chair, so all those long nights of soldering up LEDs should be a little easier.
The wife calls it “The Box” or “Your Box”, as in “Go to your box” – which is somewhat appropriate as I want to paint the door like the Tardis
I also brought up one of my old workbenches, it’s not as fancy as the new one’s but it’s super practical, has a lot of sentimental value and I don’t mind bashing the hell out of it.
I also had a few fellow builders over a couple of weeks ago to show off the new space and to join me in an interview with the SF Chronicle, who are hopefully going to do a piece on us for WonderCon next week.
